Psychiatry – We are growing
Southlake is currently creating a new 12-bed adult mental health inpatient unit to accommodate additional patient volumes. Currently Southlake has 9 PICU beds and 20 semi-private inpatient psychiatric funded beds. The new unit, once complete in winter 22/23, will create 12 private rooms with support spaces for socializing, group therapy and dining. Additional interview space and a large nursing station will provide additional areas for staff and patients.
Bring your subspecialty interest and/or training to a dynamic team of 14 full and part-time Adult Psychiatrists. Southlake has an Adult Inpatient Unit, Active Day Program, Brief Therapy Clinic, Schizophrenia clinic, Maternal Outpatient Clinic, Young Eating Disorder Clinic, Urgent Care Clinic, General Adult Outpatient Clinic, Addiction Medicine and a 24-hour first call Adult Crisis Team. We have a busy Consult-Liaison service, two ACTT and PACT teams, Rapid Assessment for Psychopharmacologic Treatment (RAPT) Clinic.

The successful candidates will participate in teaching, provide call service (3-4 calls/month) and will have opportunity to take on leadership role, manage beds and become involved in clinical trials and program expansion.
